Face yoga is a series of exercises that promise to do for your face what yoga does for your body: relax and tone muscles. So, I set out to investigate if making these targeted (not to mention ridiculous) facial expressions can really prevent — and even reverse — wrinkles and sagging.
By working all these layers correctly it will increase the blood circulation, allowing more oxygen and more nourishment to reach the cells of the skin. The result is a clear, healthy complexion with a beautiful glow which has fewer toxins and has a better ability to absorb moisture.
The anti-aging facial exercises technique is also designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the middle layer of the skin giving you a smoother, more supple, tighter-looking skin.
The Cheek Lifter: Open your mouth to form an “O,” and position your upper lip over teeth. Smile to lift cheek muscles up, then put your fingers lightly on the top part of the cheek before releasing the cheek muscles to lower them. Lift the cheeks back up. Repeat by lowering and lifting the cheeks.
Happy Cheeks Sculpting: Smile without showing your teeth. Purse your lips together, and then smile – forcing the cheek muscles up. Place your fingers on the corners of the mouth and slide them up to the top of the cheeks, holding for 20 seconds.
Good For: Lines and loose skin on the neck.
Alternative To: Neck lift and jowl lift.
Step 1: Looking straight ahead, place the fingertips at the bottom of the neck and lightly stroke the skin downwards with the head tilted back.
Step 2: Bring the head back down to the chest and repeat twice more.
Step 3: Finally, jut the lower lip out as far as possible to pull the corners of the mouth down and place fingertips on the collarbone with the chin pointed upwards. Hold for four deep breaths.
Meditation can also help us to understand our own mind. We can learn how to transform our mind from negative to positive, from disturbed to peaceful, from unhappy to happy.
Overcoming negative minds and cultivating constructive thoughts is the purpose of the transforming meditations found in the Buddhist tradition.

How to meditate: Simple meditation for beginners
Sit or lie comfortably. You may even want to invest in a meditation chair or cushion.
Close your eyes. …
Make no effort to control the breath; simply breathe naturally.
Focus your attention on the breath and on how the body moves with each inhalation and exhalation.
Close your eyes and focus on your breathing, breathe steadily in and out, inviting deeper and deeper relaxation and calmness into your body with each breath. Then releasing and tension with every outward breath. Breathing yourself deeper and deeper into a state of peace and calm.
When you feel nicely at ease bring your attention to your heart. Listen gently. Listen to any messages coming through from it. Your heart is the key to your life when you listen to it effectively and act upon what you hear from it your life flows in a smoother and more joyful way.
Listen To Your Heart
For each message you receive, thank your heart for bringing whatever it was to your attention. Be kind to your heart, let it know that you are sorry and that you will pay better attention to it from this moment onwards. Gratitude and forgiveness are important things through all of this process.
Expand out from your heart, allow thoughts to come through from your life, noticing how your life would have been different if you had had a greater appreciation of yourself through various events in the past. Notice how you would feel differently about your life, and how people would feel differently about you too, notice the increasing positivity and appreciation from all. Notice how you can easily adapt so that your life can be positive in that way now.
